Don’t Miss It


San Francisco may be where he left his heart, but we’re sure there are other important pieces of 82-year-old Tony Bennett scattered around Las Vegas. The last of the great saloon singers has played the Strip nearly every year since Milton Berle added him to his bill at the El Rancho in the ’50s.

See him at 8 p.m. today and Saturday at the Las Vegas Hilton, 3000 Paradise Road. Tickets are $91.91-$124.91; call 732-5755.


Nowhere else but a Frank Caliendo show can you see George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Pauly Shore all in the same place (with the possible exception of hell 40 years from now).

Caliendo’s dead-on put-ons — currently featured on his TBS series “Frank TV” — could fool celebrity family members. But unlike most old-school impersonators, Caliendo adds funny twists verging on the absurd. Instead of just making Al Pacino say “Hoo-ahh!” for example, he has him recite Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s on First?” routine.

Join him for a laugh at 8 p.m. today at Treasure Island, 3300 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Tickets are $64.90; call 894-7722.


We almost forgot that Bret Michaels did anything for a living besides hooking up with skanks on TV. Taking a break after taping the third season of his unintentionally hysterical VH1 reality series, “Rock of Love” (premiering in January), the Poison frontman will attempt not to be unintentionally hysterical with a backing band and that ever-present bandana. Sing along at 8 p.m. today at the brand new Access Showroom at Aliante Station, 7300 Aliante Parkway, North Las Vegas. Tickets are $44-$56; call 547-5300.


Chickens might be better without a cage. But World Extreme Cagefighting bantamweight champ Miguel Angel Torres and the unbeaten opponent trying to unseat him, Manny Tapia, are no chickens. The knuckles fly at 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel, 4455 Paradise Road. Tickets are $75-$225; call 693-5066.
